Just got back from Sydney, after spending a week with my sister and her family. My niece turned 18 on Saturday and I travelled down to attend her birthday party. What a great time I had - didn't want to come home! Well... I did, really, as I missed the cats, but I didn't want to leave my sister either.

I'll have photos soon to post here, I hope. As soon as Sarah remembers to send them to her poor old aunt.
